A 37-year-old male migrant worker of Asian origin was admitted in the emergency room of the local city hospital with complains of severe chest pain and dyspnea. A chest X-ray showed an abnormal mass in right mediastinum. The CT-scan revealed a giant tumor in anterior mediastinum compressing the right atrium, aorta, brachiocephalic vein and the superior caval vein. The tumor was removed surgically through median sternotomy. The quick microscopy ruled out malignancy.
